Final year (bachelor degree) student

Are you a final year (bachelor degree) student who likes to have an opinion but also has a "get-it-done" mentality?
We are looking to....
Improve our Reporting & Business information processes

Let’s face it, as an enthusiastic and knowledgeable finance student you can probably pick and choose your assignments. So, why would you choose us?

Meet Joyce. Joyce is our Group Controlling Manager and together with her small and enthusiastic team, she has the ambition and motivation to not only control the financial health of our business but to support the business managers into increasing their control of their financial health.

The above challenge means that we intend to add more efficiency to the recurring activities of the team. As time is always a challenge, we see the added value of a clever and fresh spark who can focus on a particular process and think in efficiencies and solutions. Perhaps this is you?

You are not seeking a placement for hands-on work experience. No, you are probably working towards the end of your Bachelor degree in the finance area and/or business studies and you are looking for an assignment to really dig your teeth into and show that well-rounded and eager young professional you have become. A final assignment to shine!

You understand our mission and you are motivated to apply your knowledge and expertise.
You enjoy using your Excel and business intelligence skills.
You have proven interest and knowledge in preparing templates and power pivots in Excel and creating data models, DAX formulas, reports and dashboards in Power BI.
You have the confidence to challenge our current way of working and identify improvements.
You are a true problem solver and have the personality to present innovative solutions in a manner that will appeal to, and motivate, your stakeholders.
You are enthusiastic and eager to roll your sleeves up, dive into a topic, propose and implement improvements.

The way we would describe the assignment:

  • Creating added efficiency in our forecast processes in such way that it will be slick, simple and automated where needed.
  • Identifying ways to reduce time and enhance the way we turn up-to-date data into fit-for-purpose high-quality business information 

Of course, we will support you to translate our practical assignment into a “graduation-worthy” topic, if necessary.

We hope that we have painted a picture that is both complete and also exciting!. You will understand we are not simply looking for a good set of brains and nice personality to take on this challenge. Naturally, it helps, but what we are really looking for is an individual who is able to work independently, not just proposing but also implementing improvements and changes, and someone who wants to be part of a team with a mission. If that is you – we would really like to hear from you!
